Tbe largest paper In Ashtabula, printed en- tlrely at borne. Offlcc 126 Main. Street. A8HTABULA. - - - OHIO Friday Morning:, Xov. 7, 1879. Yazoo City went Democratic Tuesday "by a large majority." Philadelphia gives a Republican ma jority of about 80,000. Tbe united Democratic vote in 5ew York shows a majority over the Republicans of about 30,000. TTw Tammany County ticket is defeated in New York City. The regular Demo cratic ticket is successful. The City of Pittsburgh will give between 5,000 and 6,000 majority for Butler. The Republican county ticket will be elected by majorities ranging from 2,000 to 5,000. Yellow fever has taken its departure from Memphis and business resumption is a thing of promise. If Mr. Tilden cannot carry the State of New York, how can the Democratic party carry Mr. Tilden? The millennium is evidently not yet, if the warlike preparations of Europe are to be considered significant of tbe future. All the leading powers are increasing their means for devouring one another. The women captured by the Utes at 'lie White River Agency, have been surrend ered unharmed a siirual exc. plional in stance in the history of warfare with the savages. The New York election is, no doubt, the subject of much carelul and deeply in. terested computation and calculation, which may not be borne out by inevitable results. By the destruction of the registration records in Baltimore, many voters were de nied the right to vote Tuesday, a Judge in one of the Courts deciding that corrections could not be made. Some one in the crowd at Carson City, Nevada, ventured to say to General Grant, "We all hope to see you in another Presi dency." "But that is not my wish," the General quickly replied. Ben. Butler's heart is never bowed down with weight of woe when defeated. .The Bay State need not expect to be relieved of his perennial candidacy until the turf grows green above all that is mortal of Ben. The standing of the Democratic party in Congress, might be much improved, if greater attention were given to the quanti ty of brains, rather than to the services in the cause of the rebellion, in the selection of its members. "The British conquerors of Cabul have struck a rich deposit of buried treasure, amounting to eight lacs of rupees, or about 1 5,000,000. The Ameer gave General Eoberts the information of the existence of the hidden coin." As Mr. Thurman's goose is cooked, as far as the executive office is concerned, he may perhaps draw some comfort from the idea that he might be called to a place in the cabinet of Bam Jones Tilden, when he comes into power. Colfax's lecture "Across tbe Conti nent" -at Norwalk, Connecticut, on Wed nesday evening last was a gratifying suc cess. The attendance .was large and their highest expectations were fully met. Mr. C. made a good impression. Telegrapie information has been received from Lawrence to the effect that Andrew C. Stone, Esq., was elected to the Massa chusetts State Senate, on Tuesday last, on the Butler ticket, as is inferred, as he has been an admirer of the General for some time past- The assembling of the Legislature will be the signal for lively times, and the ex pectations of not a few will fail. There are many more applicants for office than there are places to fill, and probably nine teen out of every twenty will be overtaken with sore disappointment. At Bonner's auction sale of horses in New York, last Wednesday, several thou sands of men were present, probably a large proportion attracted by curiosity to witness such a large sale and to see the many noted horses. Some eighty horses were offered. The bidding was spirited and satisfactory prices were obtained. Only Three Cents, for postage, with yonr address, will bring a double number of the good old American Agriculturist. Its supplement gives the largest, most complete display of good things ever is sued, and is entertaining and instructive reading, well worth sending for. See ad vertisement. The Democratic Journals were down on Governor Foster for selling calico during the war. They did not seem to consider that the present Governor of Kentucky was in about the same time engaged- in the business of disposing of old clothes, and no Democrat has ever been heard to complain at that. A man in Elizabeth, N. J., recently pe titioned Council for a fence that would be "goat high, goose tight, and pig strong," to protect the public park in that part of the city. Exchange. Any one who has ever passed through Elizabeth, will readily understand the propriety of such a petition, for a dirtier looking place is not often met with. It is fair to suppose that the Adminis tration will let the Senatorial question work out its own results. The "leadership" and "speakership" of the house are consid erations that have had their day, and oth ers must be started to take their place or we shall wake up some fine morning to find that Garfield ha3 the Senatorial posi tion. The auditor ot Stark country Sourbeck on account of a muddled account and reported shortage of between two and three thousand, has stepped down and out, and his bondsmen have been at their own re quest released. He is another of those fel lows who belong to the Democratic house hold of faith and have a hankering tor greenbacks a little faster than natural ac cretions. At the meeting of the Cabinet on Fri day last, Secretary Sherman called atten tion to the fact that the Dominion of Can al has prohibited the importation of American cattle, on account of apprehen sions of pleuro-pneumonia, and as some fear also exists among Americans with re gard to Canadian cattle, it was agreed that an order be immediately issued, prohibit ing the introduction of Canadian cattle in to this country. Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Some one of an enquiring mind asks the editor of the Cincinnati Commercial "what those little shining particles are, that are so often seen in the texture of the paper the Commercial uses ? Is it gold leaf?" The editor is unable to answer the question. Had the paper maker been consulted, intead of this editor the in quirer would have been informed, that these yellow particles are brass, and that they are portions ol the hooks and eyes that are left in the rags. They are bright ened up by the chemicals and porcess of the manufacture of the paper, and look ?ry much like gold. OHIO. IOWA. MAINE, ILLINOIS, COLORADO, NEW YORK, WISCONSIN, MICHIGAN, N EBRA SKA, CALIFORNIA, MIN NESO T A, NEW JERSEY, CONNECTICUT, RHODE ISLAND, PENNSYLVANIA, MASSACHUSETTS, NEW HAMPSHIRE, Republican Victories. Elections were held on Tuesday in elev en States, as follows: Massachusetts, Con necticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsyl vania, Maryland, Virginia, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska and Mississippi. The results are almost every where a tri umph for Republican principles. Eight of the eleven States have given decided Re publican majorities, following the lead of this and other States in the October elec tions. In New York the victory is v?ry complete. Cornell Republican fur Gov ernor, is elected by a pleurality of 40,000 votes, while the whole State ticket has also succeeded. The Republicans elected 24 Senators and 85 Assembly men the Dem ocrats elected 8 Senators and 43 Assembly men. The Republican majority, therefore, on joint ballot will be 58. In Massachusetts Butler is beaten again. Long, the Republican candidate for Gov ernor, has been elected by a pleurality of about 15,000. Adams the regular Demo cratic candidate received less than 10,000 votes. CojWECTictJT Republicans had a very complete victory. The election was only for Senators in the odd numbered districts, and for members of the bouse of represen tatives. Nine out of eleven senatorial dis tricts, and an increased strength in the bonse, is the result. 4 In New Jersey the Republicans have se cured a majority of the legislature. Pennsylvania has elected Butler the Re publican candidate for State Treasurer by at least 50,000 majority. No Governor is elected this year. The gain over 1878 is 27,000. The Republicans made a clean sweep in Philadelphia. Tbe Republican majority in Erie City is about 250. The Democrats had a majority of 15 in the city last year. The Republican ticket gains in the connty, but not in the same ratio. Virginia, of course, is Democratic, but the credit of the State has been vindicated by a majority against the Forcible Read justers that is, against repudiation of the State debt. This is a step in the right di rection. Wisconsin has been carried by an in creased Republican majority electing its governor and a majority of both branches of the legislature. The Minnesota Republicans elected their Republican candidates for Governor and State officers by a majority of more than 20,000. Nebraska sends returns indicating the election of Republican candidates for Su preme Judge and Regents of the State University tbe only officers voted for by a majority of nearly 10,000. Mississippi, according to announcement, is Democratic, as might be supposed, with Yazoo ciiy and county, where buckshot in the back tells the story. Maryland. Baltimore, Nov. 4. The most exciting canvass in the State has been in Howard county, where Gary, the Republican can didate for Governor, and A. P. Gorman, candidate for United States Senator, and the head of the Democratic State Rin, both liye. On a fair vote the county is Republican. To prevent Gary from car rying it, a gang of 100 Democratic ward rounders left this city early. At Elkridge they found a crowd of colored Republicans at the polls, fired upon and drove them away, wounding two seriously. Proceed ing "to Tykesville, the roughs fired upon and scattered another crowd of colored voters. The Deputy Sheriff dared not serve the warrant issued for the arrest of the ringleaders, fearing for his life. Elli cot was visited by a gang of Baltimore re peaters. Another gang visited the Third District in Howard county, and dispersed the Republican voters and shot John Mor ley, it is thought, fatally. In Anne Arun del county no Republican Judges of Elec tion were appointed. A large number of negoes were disfranchised, and the Demo crats carried the county by the grossest frauds. The Baltimore registration re cords were tampered with, whole pages of names of colored voters being scratched out. The City Supreme Court decided that corrections could not be made, leaving dis franchised one-third of the colored voters in the city. Republican gains are noted, but the Democrats carry the State by 6,000 to 8,000 majority. This then is the result of the bluster and bravado so defiantly made at the extra ses sion of Congress. The results the legis lation that followed the war, they told us, were to be wiped out. The attitude of the Democratic party was so belligerant that the people could not avoid taking note of it, and their quiet determination to meet this attitude has had its natural expression at the polls. The remarkable and almost uniform gains of the Republican party show how thoroughly they were aroused, and t he determination that the insolent ag gressions of the solid South and the fresh recollection of the fraud and violence that has marked the progress of the party, called for rebuke which has been adminis tered. No more electoral votes to be al lowed in the solid north for securing the control of the government. May we not hope that this decided but temperate ex pression of the sentiment of the country, will have the effect to teach the brigadiers better manners, if it does not affect their patriotism. Will they not see the perni cious effect of the sectional issue so fool ishly raised by them and yield to better counsels? The effect of these expressions will most assuredly be to leave tbe Democ racy out in the cold next year, and the electing of a Republican President. This will be followed by the new census, which will so cut down their numerical strenght in Congress as to put the evil day of Dem ocratic reign again so far out of sight, as for a good while, at least, J to leave the country in peace and prosperity, especially as the needful preparation is going on for giving to the next Republican administra tion the support of a wholesome majority in both branches of Ccngress. The public debt was reduced more than ten and a quarter millions dollars daring the month of October. The receipts from customs duties reached over fifteen and a half millions. The importation of foreign gold since the 1st of July is over fifty millions. The increase in National bank note circulation was over three million in the last month alone. There never was more money in the country, nor more abundant evidence of present and in creasing prosperity. It is not a prosperous time for financial philosophers to propa gate their visionary theories of irredeema ble money. Maryland. From the Cincinnati Commercial, Nov. 2. Hooker and Chandler. Death has removed from the circ le of life two very conspicuous figures within the last forty-eight hours Major General Hooker anil Senator Zach. Chandler. The death of both was sudden and pain less. General Hooker some yesrs 8go was stricken with partial paralysis, and was something of an invalid, though iu the best of spirits and in his averasre health at the moment he was stricken down, ex pired on a sofa in his hotel, and without other sign or distress than a brief struggle for breath before expiring. Senator Chandler who spoke with his usual vigor at McCormick Hall ot Friday evening, and retired to his rooms at the "Grand Pa cific Hotel, expecting on Saturday morn ing to return to Detroit, was found dead in his bed in a half reclining position. He had complained the day previous of pain in the region of the stomach, occa sioned, he thought, by something he had eaten, or by tobacco, of which he was rather an excessive user; but there was no symptom in connection with it alarm ing to either himself or his friends. Although General Hooker and Senator Chandler had filled careers in life so widely apart, there was a resemblance be tween them in their plain bluntness of speech and combativeness. The one bud the habit of attacking his foes in the field directly and impetuously, and the other was not less ready and incisive in his as saults in the political arena. Both General and Senator were men of strong likes and dislikes, and did not hes itate to express them. Prudence, conceal ment, double-dealing, were not character istics of either. Neither was what might be termed a great leader, though as brave as Achilles, both were of generous natures, and steadfast and true to the causes they espoused. Their admirers could be count ed by the hundred thousand, the dashing jeneral having the ioval anection ot the soldiers he commanded, and the S nator equally the admiration and respect ol the voters he rallied. Both were of splendid physical stature and address. No man in the American armv more nerfectlv embodied the ideal soldier than General Hooker, whose robust figure in uniform captivated soldier and civilian alike. Senator Chandler on the other hand, was tall and commanding in appearance, a head and shoulder above his brethern in the Senate. Both died beloved and widely mourned for the deeds done and the words fitly spoken, and for the sincerity and entire honesty of tneir acts and utterances. CINCINNATI LAWYERS. Biographical—Big Fees—Buried Alive. In the national House of Representatives three-fourths of the members are said to be lawyers. In the Senate all are supposed to be at least proficient in constitutional law. The two candidates for the Senato rial shoes, soon to be left vacant by Judge Thurman, who hails from the Queen City, occupy leading places at our bar. Stanley Matthews has long been the leading law yer in Cincinnati, Judge Headly alone, possibly excepted. That means the great est lawyer in Ohio, and that too means the mcst able attorney outside of New York and Massachusetts. Matthews has made, of late years, a specialty of railroad law. It seems to be true of this profession as well as of others, that as soon as a man is able he selects a particular branch and makes that alone tbe object ol study. Years ago he was a Democrat, and under Buchanan was District Attorney for the southern district of Ohio. In that capaci ty he assisted in enforcing the fugitive slave law. Ulu mend Lothi), the president of the underground railroad in aMition times, in his biography, published shortly before bis death, speaks of Matthews and his services in those times. Matthews once told Coffin that he did not feel very proud in these days of his course at that period I remember having seen an interview with Senator iilaine, about the time that Mat thews was put up as President Hayes' champion to defend bis southern policy, in which Blaine said he was prepared for Matthews, and was familiar with his his tory. It is likely that Blaine then had in mind the slave bunting and slave catching efforts of the district attorney. Such knowledge could have been used with tell ing effect by the Maine Senator had Mat thews ever tackled him in debate on this phase of the Southern question. Judge Taft the other candidate is a gen tleman of tbe old school. A quiet and dignified praeticioner and very conservative. lie is remarkable only as the father of half a dozen boys who are hereafter to play an important part in politics. One of these married David Sinton's only child and will thus some day become the possessor of about three million dollars. Another, the one who had the highest class record which was ever attained at Yale College, married Peter Hulbert's daughter, and he will sometime inherit an almost equal fortune. Judge Taft is not rich. He has always had a large income but has lived up to it. At the time Hayes was nominated for gov ernor the only reason that Taft did not make a more decided fight for the nomin ation was, that he could not afford to take the office of governor of Ohio. Matthews on the contrary is very wealthy, and in deed, it would be a pity, if on an income of from sixty to seventy-five thousand a year he did not manage to save something. His fees are pretty heavy. I knew ot one he earned without much work: An old man named Bates died here a couple of years ago, leaving a will giving to one of his sons, Harry, but a very small propor tion of his property. Old man Bates had not in his life time been a model parent and Harry Bates was of course anxious to break the will. He consulted Matthews, asked his advice and was told to hand oyer a thousand dollars and it would be given. This was done, and the legal opinion he ob tained was that the best plan for him to pursue was to do nothing. I beard a young attorney once express the wish that he could get that sum for an opinion so easily given. Speaking of big fees the largest one on record in our part of the country is that which Peter Zinn got in the Kentucky Central Railroad case. It was four hun dred and fifty thousand dollar almost half a million. I don't think Zinn has ever appeared in court since then. The Ken tucky Central has had a good many big fees to pay. Governor Fisk got a hundred and forty-nine thousand out of it, for the conduct of a case. It was there too that Hon. George H. Pendleton got the eighty thousand dollars which he so often wishes he had never seen. Fees like these are the exceptions. It is not often that more than five hundred is paid for one fee. Judge Force got forty thousand however from the Longworth estate. Tom McDougall who is now the attorney for that estate, fot five hundred dollars for drawing up lr. Marsh's will, and it wasn't such a ter rible fine job after all. McDougall is the luckiest lawyer in the seven states. Ten years ago he was a me chanic working in Lane & Bodley's ma chine shop. Now he has a practice worth ten thousand a year. He made five hun dred dollars clear of all expenses the first year of his practice, and accumulated some thing of a library beside. His is another triumph of the Scotch blood in Cincinnati. There was an article in the New York Independent a few months ago which spoke of Mr. T. D. Lincoln as the best insurance lawyer in the United States. I don't know whether or not that was a merited com pliment. He has his little fee out of al most every insurance case of any magni tude tried in the higher courts however. Lincoln has the largest and finest private law library in town. It is his wife who was the leading spirit in the management of the late Bazaar in aid of the Archbishop. She is a zealous Catholic and her children follow in her footsteps. Last week their daughter Florence took the white veil and is to be a nun. When a person of her tal ent and beauty shuts herself up inside four bare walls to spend her life in Roman Catholic mummeries it is a loss to the world. Florence Lincoln was as handsome a girl as ever lived in Cincinnati. She had eyery advantage of wealth and social position. She had studied in Paris and in Berlin. Had resided in Russia, in Spain, in Italy and England. Her conversational powers are remarkable. Her winning WBy and affectionate disposition made her one of l he most popular ladies in the city, and yet now she is buried. I think she were better dead for then perhaps she might be an angel. Now, it strikes me, her time is wasted. So much for that, which as Cap tain Cuttle would say, is a digression. JUVENIS. Cincinnati, Nov. 3rd, 1879. Senator Wade Hampton made a conserv ative speech at Greenville, S. C, the other night, in the course of which he said: "If we do not do some foolish things during the next session of Congress and I admit we sometimes do very foolish things we can elect a Democratic Presidont next election." The Sonator evidently occupied a bad stand point for the exercise of pro phetio optics. Thanksgiving Proclahation. On Mon day the 3d instt., the President issued his Thanksgiving Proclamation, as fol lows: At no recurrence of the season which the devout habit of a religious people has made the occasion for giving thanks to Al mighty God, and humbly invoking his con tinued favor, has the material prosperity enjoyed by our whole country been more conspicuous, more manifold, or more uni versal. Now, therefore, I. Rutherford B.-Hayes, President of the United States, do ap point Thursday, the 27th day ot Novem ber, inst., as a day of national thanksgiv ing and prayer; and I earnestly recom mend that, withdrawing themselves from secular cares and labors, the people of the United States do meet together on that day in their respective places of worship, there to give thanks and praise to Al mighty God for his mercies, and to devout ly beseech their continuance. The State having the highest enroll ment of school population in the und i; Massachusetts, which is 104 oer cent, and the largest average attendance in the same State is 74 per cent, against an enrollment of 16 per cent, in Arkansas. These rates gradually rise through the Southern States up to Georgia and Mississippi Georgia enrollment 40, attendance 29. and for Mississippi 49, and attendance 30. The contrast between the Southern and the Northern States is rather significant. Without education bow call there be in telligence, and without intelligence, how can the South expect to rule the country? Senetor Thurman was sound when he de clared that the intelligence of the coun try ought to rule it. A notice of the Secretary of the A:neri can Colonization society, in an ;her col umn shows that the colored man is casting about for other fields beside the great west, toward which to direct his steps in mak ing for himself a new home. The land of his ancestors is thought ol in these days of exodus from the scenes of his former serv itude and of .his present oppression and disfianchisment. The applications for passage and settlement in Liberia ot re spectable people of color are numbered by the hundred thousand. Of course no such scale of emigration can be carried on with out money. The appeal, therefore, is for help. Read the article "The exodus to Liberia." Consumption Cored.
